Description

Central Nervous System researchers organise radial maze experiments when testing contextual memory in animals. Existing set ups are performed in ambient light conditions, thus creating uncontrolled external cues.

The Peira EightMaze is equipped with infrared back lighting and a camera to allow the animal to be tracked in complete darkness. The solution incorporates a hydraulic platform driving a cylinder in which the animal is placed and where it can become accustomed to the new environment, before the test begins.
